Our Physiotherapists work with patients to deliver the most suitable treatment for an injury or condition to gain as much movement and physical independence as possible so they can resume their normal job or lifestyle.

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat people with movement problems. They also deliver patient education and help people avoid injuries and maintain a fit, healthy body.

Our Physiotherapists provide services to all clinical divisions of the hospital.
